This jacket is great for someone who can’t wait for a jacket to break in it feel like it already is
Comparing this 626VN to my 118, leather is smooth and soft, feels already broken-in, just need to wear it a few times for the jacket to conform to your body shape. I didn't realize the zippers on the sleeves are at a different position comparing to my 118, they sit slightly more on top as compared to the bottom on my 118. Those zippers also open straight to the arms with no lining under them, again this is new to me as I never owned a 626 before, my only experience is comparing it to my 118.
The jacket is vey good but sleeves is too big
I was a bit on the fence paying $870 for a jacket, especially when it was mail order and I couldn't try it on.
When it came in the mail it was love at first sight!
The craftsmanship was superior to any jacket I've ever owned and the fit was as expected slim and fashionable.
Oh and my wife loves how it looks on me so BIG plus!
The 626VN is best captured in the first two (2) pictures (showing the front and back of the jacket) which boasts its vintaged looks. I'm 6'2" with a 42"inch chest, 193 lbs with broad shoulders and found the XL to fit best for my shoulders. However, the jacket was a bit too big overall in the chest and back, and so decided to size down to the Large which gives a fitted or slimmer fit. The range of mobility is somewhat limited, however I am not using the jacket for riding. I also wouldn't plan to have thick garments under the jacket either - living in South Florida this suits just fine. I was also considering the PER70, but decided against its higher level of vintaging compared to the 626VN. The quality and build is top-shelf. With some wear and stretching the jacket seems to be taking on a good fit.
I bought this 626vn at the L.A. store and couldn't be happier.I tried on the 618 and 118 steer hide perfectos...the leather was just too stiff for me.I wanted a everyday casual jacket and riding jacket.This jacket is extremely comfortable and I knew it was the one for me after trying it on.I'm 5'11" ,190 lbs.....it fits very snug,so I went with the XXL.....another great feature that I like is the traditional zipper sleeve which allows for a slight roll up if desired. ...great "cool casual look "for around town.The jacket feels broken in right from the start and has a great vintage look.My next Schott purchase will be the 619!!!
This jacket is just PERFECT! I love it. I bought the 626 regular and fit really good and also you can wear that with a sweater or something but the 626vn it’s more light and slim fit what is great if your are looking for something with more “rock&roll” style. I appreciated a lot how they treat the costumers. Jerri is amazing 😉
I have been searching for a leather that has a lot of quality but at a reasonable price and the search is over. I am a slim guy so shopping online can be difficult. I had been looking at this online and was close enough to the Chicago store to try it on. I could tell taking it off the rack it was the one. The fit for a slim guy is fantastic. The shoulders, chest, arms, and total length are just perfect. For reference I am 5'10" and 125 lbs and the XS fits perfectly. It is on the tight side but with regular wear should mold perfectly. I debated the regular 626 vs the VN but once I saw the VN in person, I was sold. The distressing is done thoughtfully and not overdone or cheesy like some can do it. Overall really happy!
Ordered the vintage cowhide motorcycle jacket 626VN online on a Saturday from Dallas, Texas. Order was filled and shipped that Monday per the email Schott sent me and I received the jacket the following Thursday. I usually take a size medium in a jacket or coat (40R), so that's what I ordered. Medium in this jacket was extremely snug (uncomfortably snug), so I filled out the return form which came with the jacket, packed it back in the box without removing the tags as instructed, and mailed it back to Schott the following day (Friday). I received an email the next Wednesday informing me the replacement jacket had shipped and it arrived the next Saturday. The large size fits fine. The jacket is exactly as I expected; the quality of the leather, the stitching, snaps and zippers are all very good, and of course it looks great. I wanted a lighter weight jacket and one I wouldn't have to spend a lot of time breaking in. This jacket should fit the bill.
Hello From France
I just don't know how to describe this jacket. It fits perfectly even on first wearing.
The vintaged process is just perfect, this jacket looks like it was worn for years.
The leather is soft and the inner coton lining is warm, let you move easily and have a really good looking .
It's my first real Schott "perfecto" i've some other brand leather jackets but no one is like this one and i already plan to buy an other A 118 i think.
Only warning make sur to order the good size if you want to wear it with heavy sweater. I'm 5,9' tall and 50" chest and It's most use for me with light shirts. With heavy pullover or other i'm little tight. But with t-shirts or light sweater "i'm home"
Thanks again and i see you for my next jacket
